Episode 21: Becoming a House Detective: Researching a 17th Century Home

sp home

In this talk, local author Stephen Poulter shares his experience of researching the story of the 17th century cottage in Norfolk which he moved into in recent years. He recounts the tales of the owners and residents of his own home over more than 300 years, who ranged from Victorian farmers and bricklayers to a Georgian gentlewoman of independent means and a wealthy 17th century landowner. He also describes the various processes and historic documents involved in investigating the background of any historic property so that anyone listening can set out on their own journey of historical discovery.
